I think I made it clear that I understand your point, and I've explained
that interoperability will not be achieved as you propose, for there are
more important considerations than interoperability; or alternatively,
that the progressive processing model would be defined more strictly in-
stead of what you propose if "interoperability" is considered important.
It is not possible to both meet user needs and delay processing until
after the whole document can be and is made available to script.
